The Building and Zoning Department protects and preserves the investment of both residential and commercial property owners with consistent and comprehensive code enforcement of all city ordinances pertaining to building, zoning, and nuisance abatement. These standards as set by the City Council regulate the immediate building, use, and maintenance of structures within the City. The community has developed these standards to protect the long-term investment of property owners and the City. The Building and Zoning Department works with residents, businesses, and developers to ensure development projects or other improvements are reviewed, inspected, and completed in a timely and efficient manner.
Occupancy inspections and permits are also handled by the Building & Zoning Department.
